Book Review: The Roswell UFO Conspiracy by Nick Redfern



Today I finished Nick Redfern's most recent book, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy: Exposing a Shocking and Sinister Secret. It is a follow-up to his 2005 book Body Snatchers in the Desert, also about what came down at the Foster Ranch, Roswell, New Mexico, in July of 1947. Most people, when they hear "Roswell," think of a crashed UFO. But the sources Nick talked with for Body Snatchers in the Desert had a decidedly different story to tell. One that didn't involve extraterrestrials.

From those four sources, and others who talked to other people and/or researchers, and from information from government files, Redfern concludes that what came down at Roswell in 1947 was definitely not a "UFO" of the alien type. Far more likely, as the evidence points to, it was something from the U.S. government that they wanted (and still want) to keep secret.

The theory that Nick supports in this book is that what came down at Roswell (and there were actually multiple crashes, not just one incident) in the summer of 1947 were secret aircraft and/or balloons being tested by the U.S. government. And the "dead aliens" weren't aliens at all. They were people.

From the evidence presented in the book, it seems that after WWII ended, the U.S. secretly began working with German, Japanese, and/or the Russians on secret prototype aircraft. And they used people in the test flights, not "test dummies" as the Air Force has said years later. And it was these people that have been mistaken for aliens. As it turns out, they were most likely physically and/or mentally handicapped Japanese used in the experiments. People who say they saw the bodies claim they were short, had enlarged heads and small ears and noses, and other deformities of that sort. In other words, deformed dwarves.

Back to the subject of the U.S. possibly working with Germans… it is claimed that the U.S. government had Josef Mengele (the "Angle of Death,"), a German who did horrific experiments on prisoners during WWII, involved in the projects that resulted in the crashed "UFOs." Another, very interesting note is that Mengele had a particular fascination with human dwarves.

If you read this book, your perspective on Roswell will likely change.

Unless, as Nick notes, you're a UFO researcher who doesn't want to believe that what came down at Roswell wasn't a UFO. The "Holy Grail" case of UFOlogy would be proven to not be a UFO at all. But is it really that horrible? That's not where the evidence points to!

Because guess what - the multiple U.S. experiments that crashed in the New Mexico desert in the mid-to-late 1940s weren't UFOs. As Nick says at the end of the book… Aliens didn't crash at Roswell!

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
